Each step in the WOO value chain is special. The way we produce is unique – instead of driving down costs and producing a cheap product, we believe in doing business that creates partnerships between people and a positive impact on the planet. Our teams work together to create outstanding products out of natural ingredients, using time-honoured techniques and know-how. Giving the gift of a WOO product is ultimately about supporting co–creation, and we’re thrilled to bring our special products to the world.
WOO bottles are sourced from streets, primarily from restaurants and hotels. We buy them from organized groups of collectors, whose daily income we set out to aid and support not just through sales, but also by teaching life self-organizing skills. We allow our collectors to streamline revenues so that they can focus on other aspects of life – like family and community. Workers clean, cut and sand WOO bottles by hand.
After being cleaned and cut, our bottles are sandblasted with the WOO logo by hand. We are also able to add your partner or business logos, so please do not hesitate to ask if you are considering a custom order. We believe in making you as much a part of the process and product as those who work to actually make it.
WOO works with associations of local farmers in Vietnam – around 1,000 in total – to source premium quality beeswaxes. The natural beeswax burns cleanly in your home, unlike paraffin blends. Wax from the farm is removed from the hives and delivered to our small workshop, where it undergoes further processing and refining. Bee farming is acknowledged to have several social and economic benefits. Not only do our farmers produce wax for WOO candles, but they also produce and sell honey, bees and Royal Jelly products. WOO beeswax is filtered and melted very carefully, so as not to damage the structure of the wax. At this point our premium perfumes are also added. We use special kettles in our workshop to do this, which is closely supervised to safeguard quality, composition and candle burn time. Just as important as the wax is the quality of the wick itself; WOO’s cotton wicks are top quality handmade wicks from Germany.
The clean, scented hot wax is poured into our special WOO bottle candle holders. Every WOO bottle candle is carefully packaged by hand, ready for shipping and delivery.
WOO candles are among the longest-lasting candles on the market, burning for up to 100 hours. Create a cozy atmosphere in your space with our range of four divine scents.
The WOO candle is made using simple resources: our hands, upcycled bottles, pure beeswax, high quality perfumes and passion. Handmade in Asia, our premium product gives you up to 100 hours of perfume and light, and helps to light up the lives of the people who made them.
